CARDINAL CHRISTMAS BASKETS
In previous years, Cardinal Christmas Baskets has delivered 36o+ food baskets to families in need in our community. From your generous donations we have been able to supply the Siouxland Family Center with roughly 1,500 canned goods as well. The baskets delivered to recipient families contained such staples as a turkey or two chickens, canned fruits and vegetables, flour, sugar, and other items for a nutritious holiday dinner. To continue this wonderful community tradition, we need your help.
FOR 2021, CARDINAL CHRISTMAS BASKETS WILL BE DELIVERING OR MAILING HY-VEE GIFT CARDS TO THE LESS FORTUNATE IN OUR COMMUNITY, INSTEAD OF ASSEMBLING AND DELIVERING ACTUAL FOOD BASKETS. THE COMMITTEE FEELS THAT DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY OF COVID-19 IN DECEMBER 2021, THIS IS THE SAFEST AND BEST WAY TO ASSIST OUR NEIGHBORS IN NEED.
You may be asking yourself how you can help? There are many ways!
Ringing of the Bells: Groups of 4-6 adults compete for bragging rights, will your bucket win? Or rather these teams will be singing and dancing on the streets for the lucky drivers of South Sioux City and Dakota City, on Saturday, December 11th, from 9am to 3pm to fill their buckets. For more information and to sign up (don't worry we won't really make you sing and dance or compete) contact the South Sioux City Chamber at (402) 494-1626.
Monetary Donations: Send in your tax deductible checks and contributions to the South Sioux City Community Foundation, PO Box 987, South Sioux City, NE 68776. Please indicate that the money is to be used for Cardinal Christmas Baskets. You will make a world of difference in our community.
Spread the word: Help the Cardinal Christmas Basket Committee by spreading the word. Let your friends & family know we need volunteers, monetary donations, and most importantly- YOU.
We are grateful for your consideration of this worthy project. Happy holidays and thank you for all you do for our community.
Sincerely, Bill Garvey
